The Daily Voice reports:
A long-lasting, major storm taking aim on the Northeast will bring between a foot and 18 inches of snowfall to much of the region, along with blizzard-like conditions, including strong, gusty winds. The storm is expected to develop late Sunday night, Jan. 31, and become heaviest in the afternoon on Monday, Feb. 1, and linger into Tuesday, Feb. 2.
“Travel could be very difficult to impossible,” the National Weather Service said in a Hazardous Weather Outlook statement issued Sunday morning. “The hazardous conditions could impact the morning and evening commute (on Monday). Gusty winds could bring down tree branches. Blizzard conditions are possible Monday and Monday evening.”
The New York Daily News reports:
Gov. Cuomo directed state agencies to prepare all emergency response gear and promised to scrutinize the response of utility companies to any power outages. The storm was expected to wreak havoc on the Monday morning and evening rush hours, with travel throughout the region expected to turn dicey at best. At the storm’s peak, the snowfall could drop up to 2″ per hour.
The New Jersey Advance reports:
Northern and central parts of New Jersey are now bracing for even more snow than originally projected as a major, prolonged nor’easter winter storm is expected to slam the state Sunday into Tuesday, possibly dropping up to 18 inches in some areas, according to updated forecasts.
Early projections of 8 to 12 inches of snow have now leapt to 12 to 18 inches in several counties, including Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth and Morris, according to the National Weather Service. Early projections of 6 to 8 inches of snow have upped to 8 to 12 inches in Sussex and Warren counties.

In addition, winds of 20-35 mph with gusts up to 40-50 mph are expected along the coast Monday and Tuesday, along with minor to locally moderate coastal flooding during high tides on Monday-Tuesday. pic.twitter.com/c1Wq0J4QZt

We are getting ready for the snow. Due to nature of this storm, our brine trucks will be out this evening to apply liquid salt to some roadways/bike lanes. Brine is spread only before precipitation begins on dry streets & forms a barrier to help keep snow/ice from accumulating. pic.twitter.com/otZAl8Tp3p

Heaviest winds are set to arrive on Monday. Here are potential peak wind gusts. Whipping winds will be strong enough to cause blowing snow, poor visibility, down trees, power lines, and power outages #WinterStorm #snow #noreaster pic.twitter.com/RMUbyDPPrc
